    Campy Hyperion wheels
    Campy Record Carbon Canks
    (Maybe next year..)

    i'm not budging. since these are two bikes that i will obtain. i feel that these are such good ideas that if i let the cat out of the bag someone with more money than i would definatly steal them and be riding my dream bikes before me. im probably just paranoid though:confused: but if i do ever build them up i assure you that pictures will be posted up everywheres and everyone in the world will have to see them:D

    Yesterday, I went to the club ride at the country club with my new Colango C50 with the spider web graphics, I love how that looks. I had to get a new rear derailluer for my Madone SSL because the one on it had a slight blemish. Tommorow, I will put my Colango on the BMW M3 and we will head to the Polar Bear Metric.


    I wish:rolleyes:
    I am going to pick up a new Trek 1500 today and I will ride the Polar Bear Metric tommorow. My dream bike is a Colango C50 but its kind of expensive ($11,000)

    Four years ago, I was able to build my ultimate bike. Mongoose Pro Ti frame, Chris King Ti NoThreadset, Profile BRC, Dura Ace, Mavic Open Pro (for training, Kyseriums for racing), World Class BB, ITM Millenium stem, bar, seatpost, Selle Italia Ti gel Flite. With my 50cm frame it weighs about 14.5 lbs/ 6.6kilos. Four years later, I still love this machine! Oh yeah, Speedplay X1

    One of these days I'll be able to build my ultimate mountain bike. A Moots YBB!

    I would have to say I've got mine:

    FeltF10

    Frame - Easton Scandium Ultra-light w/carbon seat stays and integrated head tube.

    Fork - Reynold's Ouzo Pro ultra-light carbon fiber.

    Components - Complete Campy Record Group w/carbon cranks and Ti cassette.

    Wheelset - Campy Hyperon Tubular.

    Misc. Parts - Carbon handlebar, carbon seatpost, Selle Italia SLR racing saddle w/Ti rails, Speedplay X-1 pedals and Profile carbon bottle cage.

    The only thing to make it better would be if the tubulars never went flat, the water bottle never went dry of ice cold water and the parts never wore out.

    Later!

    What I would want, money no object, drool-heavy super-lightweight bike would be a full custom Calfee Dragonfly built up with the lightest bits that are strong enough for my weight so I end up with a 14lb weight-weenie that I'll ride gingerly so I don't crash it. ;)
